Details

Crafted by Viñedos Singulares, Afortunado is a single varietal Verdejo made from vines located at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level, in the northern Spanish province of Segovia, belonging to the DO Rueda.

Harvested in mid October, the grapes were destemmed, cold-soaked and gently crushed. Then this Spanish white wine was fermented at a controlled temperature for 20 days.

Finally, Afortunado 2018 was aged on its lees to enhance its aromatic qualities.

Drink this white wine from Rueda over the next 18 months.

Additional Information
